As part of its popular, multi-function Slow Juicer System that allows for high juice yield by preventing foaming, clogging and heat build-up, Florida-based Vacucraft, Inc., has manufactured the 750-mL vacuum-seal juice container using Tritan copolyester, the proprietary amorphous thermoplastic from Eastman Chemical, Kingsport, Tenn.
The Tritan molded container is said to stop oxidation and nutrient loss and stands up to repeated dishwasher cleaning. Moreover, the vacuum-sealed food-storage container has been shown to maintain freshness 125-200% longer than standard food containers. The toughness of Tritan is also said to be key because, vacuum sealed, this container is resistant to contracting, reportedly a benefit over competitive products. Other Vacucraft products now made with Tritan include steamers and dehydrators.
